Outcomes assessment program

IUL’s Assessment is the systematic collection, review, and use of information about our educational programs undertaken for the purpose of improving student learning and development. An outcomes assessment is completed for each program annually. IUL has developed outcomes assessment program intended to provide an ongoing review of the institution’s effectiveness. The program for assessing institutional effectiveness has two components: one, gathering and compiling information on the extent of IUL’s accomplishments in achieving defined purposes; and, two, using such information for institutional planning and program improvement.

The components of our undergraduate programs demonstrate an integrated course of study that helps students develop the breadth and depth of intellect to become more effective learners and to prepare them for a productive life of work, leadership, and personal fulfillment. It aims at developing a student’s intellectual ability, executive personality and managerial skills through an appropriate blending of business and general education.
The program assists the student in understanding and developing the unique leadership qualities required for successfully managing business functions, an organizational unit or an enterprise.
These learning outcomes for the undergraduate level indicate that upon successful completion of any program, students:

  • Produce up-to-date, assertive and effective executives for business and other organizations
  • Are prepared for higher studies in business at home and abroad
  • Acquire potential for high earnings, increased responsibility, and greater personal development

UL demonstrates that the Educational components of its baccalaureate degree programs have identifiable and assessable learning outcomes that are stated in relation to the institution’s mission, and recognized to be appropriate to the Baccalaureate level by the Commission of Independent Education in Florida.

Here are the most recent outcomes.

Graduate programs are consistent with the University’s mission; in keeping with the expectations of their respective disciplines and professions. They require a greater depth of study and increased demands on student intellectual or creative capacities; knowledge of the literature of the field; and ongoing student engagement in research, innovation, leadership, and/or appropriate high-level professional practice.
Graduates:

  • Master the skills of business leadership and entrepreneurship
  • Possess the managerial knowledge related to all areas of business
  • Work within diverse global regions
  • Able to face developing global challenges in international communities

The programs provide an ethical and legal foundation for the student’s behavior in commerce and give the student insights into recognizing inappropriate behavior in others. they imbue the student with detailed knowledge of managing both projects and operations. Programs describe how effective managers lead—how they make decisions to motivate others and how they organize efforts to tap into human capabilities most effectively.
The Graduate assessments measures are: course assessments, student projects, papers, dissertation, exhibitions, performances, case studies, and final evaluations.
